The New Balance 57/40 silhouette is one of the Boston sportswear label's new silhouettes and has already become a popular lifestyle option for many. The chunky, fashion-forward aesthetic it possesses have opened up countless collaboration possibilities, recent ones being the Bricks & Wood x New Balance 57/40 "Green" and the Bandier x New Balance 57/40 "Move Her World". For its latest rendition, the model has stepped up to receive a makeover by renowned LA-based artist Joshua Vides.
While a full view of the Joshua Vides x New Balance 57/40 is still missing, the image we have from Mr Vides reveals a small section of the shoe featuring the artist's signature thick black outlines that makes the object look hand-drawn.
On that note, it also seems that this Joshua Vides New Balance will emphasise the artist's work by way of cream/sail panels to deliver a pop of contrast. Lastly, an additional image uploaded via Instagram shows that these will come in a special shoebox that mimics plywood-made crates imprinted with the word “FRAGILE.”
The Joshua Vides x New Balance 57/40 is set for a release date on the 5th of November at select New Balance retailers globally. So be sure to stay locked in right here at The Sole Supplier for all the latest New Balance updates. In related news, the Casablanca x New Balance XC-72 "Cream" arrives with a clean setup.
